Ice cream of the future

    Yesterday, at the NCAA championship game, I had some Dippin' Dots for the first time in years.

    It got me wondering, at what point does it become the future? These damn dippin' dots have been the ice cream of the future for at least 12 years now. I'm pretty sure the future is now.

    So what's the ice cream of the future now? Regular ice cream? Sorbet? Gelatto?

    I don't think I can take this anymore. At some point, they need to admit that the future is either A. Here, or B. Not going to involve dippin dots.

    I got the cookies and cream flavor by the way, I feel like you all need to know this. And by all of you, I mean the night shifters, I don't think the day crew would fully appreciate this thread.

    I've been saying this for years.

    My first taste of Dippin' Dots was at the now-defunct Opryland back in the 80s. The Jetsons held up better as a model of the future than the dots.

    I hear that Pinkberry frozen yogurt stuff is pretty darn good.

    I've never had it, has anyone else?

    The future is old enough to drink.

    Dippin Dots is the nastiest stuff ever. If you buy it at a sporting event, it's melted before you get back to your seat, so the dots are nonexistent.

    Sbarro followed by Dippin' Dots: the meal of a man who realizes he made all the wrong decisions in his life.

    When I saw them on the councourse at Shea Stadium about four years ago as the only ice cream, it really did feel like ice cream of the future because Shea Stadium felt like a 1960s dump and about four scoops of it cost $5.

    Ugh. They're all over LA and it's crap. Extremely trendy and overly expensive crap. Give me soft serve or gelato any day of the week.

    Interesting. Personally I don't think anyone does it better than Baskin Robbins after all these years.

    I prefer some Baskin Robbins chocolate.

    Dippin Dots was invented by a couple from the same town where the recipe for Krispy Kreame doughnuts was created. That's my useless FYI of the day.

    Edit: NVM, Dippin Dots is now headquartered in the same place. Close enough.

    There's this tiny little doughnut shop in Paducah that I swear has the best doughnuts ever. Somebody bought the wrong recipe.
